The bighorn sheep study I'm working will be done right around the opener of elk archery (late August). Right now I have an elk tag which will run all through the opener and into the mtn. goat season. I have to make up my mind if I am going to turn in my elk tag in order to get some extra goat scouting in. Things are going so well so far that I am not really sure turning in my elk tag will do me any good.
Either way I've got a deer and a pronghorn scouting trips occupying the next two weekends. I'll get atleast two more trips up to the goat unit even if I don't turn in my elk tag.
